FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: Stars Clashes In Group Match

With the qualifiers out of the way, the 2022 FIFA World Cup group stage draw was held over the weekend, giving us a glimpse of the action that’ll follow in November. Footballing superstars will grace the world’s biggest stage from 21 November to 18 December at the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar.

The draw for the 2022 FIFA World Cup was made on Friday. While Spain set up a mouth-watering clash with Germany in Group E, defending champions France were placed in Group D. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal were drawn in Group H. Five-time winners Brazil were placed in Group G. Qatar, the hosts of the tournament, already took position A1 from Pot 1 (placed in Group A), while the remaining teams were allocated pots on the basis of their FIFA Rankings, released on Thursday.

Team-mates at Liverpool since 2018, Senegal’s Sadio Mane, and Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk will be fierce enemies at Qatar 2022 as they bid to help their nations reach the knockout stages. But who will come out on top in their World Cup showdown?
